Vicki Jackson, interpretive specialist at the Hunter-Dawson State Historic Site in New Madrid, reads "The Night Before Christmas" during a special Christmas tour for children offered at the home on Saturday afternoon. Listening to the story are Blake Nash, 6, and Carson Nash, 4, of Malden. The children also learned how Christmas was celebrated during the 1860s, made ornaments and played games typical of the time period.
